Celariac is the cultivated root of celery and is a delicious Winter vegetable.
It has been cultivated here since 1720 but seems to be taking its time to catch on.
It can be cooked in many of the same ways as Turnip but has a distinctive celery taste, it can also makes a very good winter salad.
1 head Celeriac
2 oz. Butter
Salt and Black Pepper
1 tbs Cream (or 2 tbs milk)
Peel the celeriac and cut into rough chunks.
Put into boiling salted water and simmer until soft (30 mts.approx).
When soft drain it well and mash it roughly with a Potato masher (you dont have to be too particular as a little texture in the mash is pleasant).
Beat in the butter and cream and season well.
This reheats well.
